Originally from Switzerland Jean-Jacques Porret has spent his days traveling the world in taking the role of a student under Sculpting Masters to evolve his creative process as a sculpture using bronze using the lost–wax method, also called cire-perdue. His intuitive and free approach to depicting the human figure brings to life earthy and modern ideas of the body and its many roles.
What are you currently focusing on?
“A series of new sculptures keeping my style, meaning, and spirit “
Have you experienced any significant changes in your work this last year?
“Yes, my sculptures are even more fluid and interesting as 3 D pieces.”
Where are you from, and how has that influenced your art?
“Originally from Switzerland, from art collector’s parent, which has influenced my art. Started to sculpt and put things together at an early age, stopped in my middle teen and started again after the age of 25. “
